Colorado is in the NCAA Tournament – and they didn't have to wait long to find out where they'd be headed.

The Buffs earned a No.8 seed and will play No. 9 Pittsburgh in their opening round game on Thursday in Orlando, Florida. If they win they will likely play the No. 1 overall seed in the entire bracket – the Florida Gators.
